Baby, how are you feeling! I am sorry for not coming soon earlier, I just found out what happened". She hugged me maintaining the same gloomy look on.
Mom walks out of the kitchen and saw I have finally returned home, she shoots me a weak smile and veers her head toward auntie.
"Here's a glass of water, take it".
Aunt Marrietta takes the cup and gulped down the cold water brought in my mom, she buffed out a deep breath and sat down on the couch.
We all sat and waited for her to regain her lost strength, she buffed out a deep breath and veered trying to force a smile.
I know deep down, aunt was hurting inside, and so were we, losing dad as not only changed everyone's life to mostly mine, I went from miss party Queen diva to miss I just lost my dad, head placed down to earth, trying to help her family kind of girl, indeed it was the only option that urged me to even think of getting married to Mr arrogant.
Afterward, I ushered aunt into her room, along with her was brought a huge traveling box, it's as if, she ran away from home and wished to relocate over here.
"Wow aunt, you have such a huge bag, I wonder how you managed to carry it from the city of Saint Louis". (Teased her)
Aunt laughed at the statement, I had just made!! She seats me on the bed after I placed her bags at the side.
"So tell me, what's going on? Anything new?" She asked fiddling for my response.
I ran a suspicious glare, when she says, what's going on, and if anything was new? What exactly was she driving out, does she know about Alvin and me? Has mom told her already?.
"Hmm! Auntie, I don't think, I understand what you meant by, anything new" In a wary look, I said to her.
Auntie smiles and finally told me the real reason behind her wired questions, she says, "I found out that you're going to get married to Alvin Fisher, the CEO of fisher cooperation, and before you say anything, I already know the reason behind it! But I'll like to ask, are you seriously going to get married to a man, you have no feelings for?".
Indeed with everything going on, love is the least important to me, my family is the most important and if marrying Alvin, will secure them, I wouldn't mind doing such, luckily our marriage is only a contracted one, it's only a slated limited of time.
"Lisa, snap out of it".
Aunt saw how further my thoughts ran, and if she hadn't snapped me back, it would have gone further away.
" Yes aunt, sorry about that, what can I say, if marrying Alvin, will make my family happy, I wouldn't mind". I copied and pasted my initial words to her, aunt tugged my hair behind my eyes, donning a weak smile.
"Do you want to something, I just found out?". She shoots me a weird expression.
"What did you?" I asked as she lets out the thoughts in her mind, "Lisa, you have grown up so much, in a short time! Maybe your father's death, was necessary to get your back on track". (smiles)
"Really? To the right track? How? Was I that rebellious to begin with?" I giggled out my words to him.
Aunt playfully dragged my ears, echoing her words through it, "you were the most rebellious child to begin with! Not only that but also stubborn and a party diva as well, partying was your middle name".
(She nudged my ears away, wearing a smile)
Aunt and I shared a moment, but everything seems to weeder, when Tori walks in and Informed me that my attention was needed.We both walked out to the living room and took notice of a young lady staring profoundly at me, she tries to walks closer but mom drags her back."Hello! Liza heart, I have been wanting to speak with you!" The strange lady let's out to me.I veered closer donning a weird look, "who are you? I asked."My name is Carol and I would like to speak with you in private please!". She loomed her eyes around and I sensed she didn't want anyone to hear our conversation.Mom disapproved of her idea, but I was much curious about what Carol wished to speak with me about, I ran a weak smile and strolled out of the house with her.We walked a further and when she noticed we weren't being followed, I veered donning a straight face.
Alvin acted like the perfect gentleman in front of the journalists, he maintained his smile and continued dancing.After a while, we returned to the party!! He took me by my hands as we walked close to a man and a woman who veered back donning a smile."Hello, son!!! Who Is she?" The woman asked still smiling.Alvin shoots me a weak smile, held me tightly, and said, "actually mom, the lady here, is my fiancee". He says, as the glass from his mom's hands dropped down and scattered around."What!!! Is this a silly joke, Alvin because If it is, I'll beat you to a pulp".He veers and falls his attention to the man standing beside his mom, thus I figured if the woman is his mom, the man must be his father."Oh please dad!!! Don't try to scare me in front of the woman I love, and before you say anything, yes!! Miss Lisa heart is going to be my wif
The atmosphere changed, Mr. Ajay pulls out a stool and sat down, his eyes still diced on mine, he proceeds again, "now, how about we play a game, you tell me who you are and I tell you what and why all this is happening, no one gets hurts, we all leave happy.A curious look draped over my face, what the heck does he mean by such words, "look, Mr. Ajay, my name is Lisa and I am Alvin's fiancee". I affirmed to him, rather he shook his head and disproved, weaving a buzzer sound."Wrong answer, Missy!!! Now let's try this again, who are you, tell me the truth and if you try to lie to me the second time, I'll make sure that your family gets the result of your foolish decision!". He says still maintaining the same look at me.It finally came to me that he wanted to know the real truth and not the made-up one, thus I opened my mouth and said, "my name is Liza heart and I am the daughter to late Leonard and Alvin contracte
Somehow I managed to get myself free, I strolled out and found out, I was still at the mansion but was kept at bays length, you can say, it was a little cabin built separately from the mansion, luckily Alvin rushed out and sighted me from a far distance."Lisa!!" He attained my attention and ran to me. "What are you doing here!! I have been looking for you, I even thought you were kidnapped!!" He recedes donning a relief look on his face, if only he knew I was kidnapped by his very own stepfather."Am sorry!! I thought of having a stroll around the house, so I walked and found myself here!!".(I lied to him)Alvin shoots me a weak smile trying to read the interpretation I had on, receding with his words, "okay!! But next time, tell me before going anywhere, I don't want anything happening to you".A weak smile smudge on, "you do know I can take care of myself, I am a grown-as
I walked in and saw Tori peeking at the window, she immediately veers the second her eyes fall on me, "hmm!!! Young lady, ain't you supposed to be sleeping?" I donned a stitch fix at her.Tori retained her eyes to me and said, "yes but I was only waiting for your return" she says feeling enthusiastic to hear me speak."Really!!! Why? You do know, it's light's our after ten " I walked up to my room as she rushed in maintaining the curious look on her face."Yes sir, but tell me!!! What happened at the party, and don't you even think of kicking me out not without telling spilling the beans".Tori pulls me and sits me down on the bed, waiting to see my reaction.(After a few minutes of silence I finally spoke out to her hearing).(Inaudible conversation)"You see, that all that happened" I muttered after telling the entire truth to her, Tori p
He moaned softly curly his eyes at me, and he scanned thoroughly, retorting back, "I don't think you need to change, because wearing this will make you stand out".I got up and jump down like a bouncer, "what do you mean by that, do I look like a clown?" I pushed for a response, as he veered a few steps away from me."No!!" He dons a charming smile at me, which got me jilted, "why don't you get dressed miss trouble, and please make yourself pretty, besides your going to be my wife" (still maintaining that smile, he walked out of the room).(An hour later)Alvin paced around in the living room, constantly yelling out my name, mom turns to inquire what's taking me so long but halts the second I strolled out of the room."Urgh!! Thank God, are you always, this late for occasions, and please don't tell me you forgot to apply another set of eyeliner". (Sarcasm).&nb
Ajay frowns at my statement, "do I have to spell everything out for you?" He wears an odd look on his countenance."Yes, yes, you do, but why do I have this feeling like you want me to poison someone?".I took a step backward trying to hold in my smiles, Mr. Ajay pulls a step closer and affirmed my words "yes, you are right, I want you to poison your soon-to-be-fake mother law".(Spurned at his statement)"Wait!! What, position Alvin's mom, no way, am I doing such a thing".I declined his offer, attempting to leave, rather he dragged me back and weaved out a warning, "don't you think of messing with me child!!! And you just an hour to go over there and do my bidding". (Pushed me and walked out after offering me a glass of two bubbly glasses of wine in my hands).Out of burden, I walked over to Alvin's mom, my hands were trembling, I don't th
"Mr. Alvin, are you trying to act smart with me?". (A sly smile on)We both shared a smile as he waits to hear my final response to him, it was left to either say a big yippee or a nope, either way, I was a little curious about what he wants to talk with me about."Fine, let me see what you want to show me?". I said smurfing a smile on his face, "let's go then" he walks away, still maintaining the look on his face.We walked into a strong room, a dark creepy storage room, "erm!! Why are we here Alvin?" I asked as he switched the light to the room on, smudge a startled look on my face, the whole room was filled with pictures of a long happy family, I soared my eyes and ran past a childhood picture of Alvin himself, he was so cute and surprised chubby( aww).Alvin melted his eye to mine and saw how lost I stared at his picture, "miss trouble, what's going on in your head?" He lets out attaining my atte
